Roofe joined Leeds in the summer of 2016 and spent three years at Elland Road, where he linked up with Bielsa during his last season in at the Whites.
The 27-year-old spearheaded Bielsa’s front line during the 2018/19 season and played 34 games in all competitions, scoring 15 goals, as he helped Leeds finish the regular season in third place in the Championship.
The Gers star revealed he learned a lot under Bielsa’s tutelage and credited the Argentine for changing his perspective on the beautiful game.
Roofe evolved as a player in his final year with the Yorkshire giants as he was tasked with leading the Whites forward line by Bielsa, and the Gers new boy credited his former manager for allowing him to pick up the tricks of the trade in a new position.
Asked what he took away from his time spent under Bielsa, Roofe told Rangers TV: “I took away a lot.
“He changed the way I thought about the game in certain aspects.
“He allowed me to really learn the position because the position was new to me at the time.
“To really learn it, to get different ideas and like I said, to see the game a bit differently.”
Roofe, who arrived at Ibrox earlier this summer, has hit the ground running for his new team and scored his second Scottish Premiership goal on Saturday against Dundee United.
